"From Mountains to Saltmarsh: Rediscovering the MOS Sancturies"
presented by Marcia Watson
Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) owns nine sanctuaries, totaling
over 2,100 acres, spanning Maryland from Garrett County in the western
part of the state, to Somerset County on the Eastern Shore. All of the
sanctuaries are open to the public every day of the year, at no charge,
and represent a microcosm of the habitats for birds in Maryland.
Marcia will review the history of the MOS Sanctuary Program, provide
profiles, and show maps and photos of all the sanctuaries, discuss the
birds and habitats found there, and will cover some of the challenges
that MOS faces in managing the properties.
